NASCAR's Junior Johnson to sell property at auction

HAMPTONVILLE (By Monte Mitchell, Winston-Salem Journal) - When NASCAR pioneer Junior Johnson and his family downsized, they went from a $6 million landmark house on 150 acres near U.S. 421 in western Yadkin County to an exclusive Charlotte address in Quail Hollow.

The cattle are gone from the farm, and the rooms are mostly empty.

When the house didn't sell for $6 million, they reduced it to just less than $5 million.
